If you’ve been on the Internet at all today, you probably know that the FCC officially repealed Net Neutrality, a decision that left a lot of people pretty damn angry. Here’s a nice sample of tweets from people who are officially DONE with our government after this ruling:
So yeah, people aren’t exactly happy that three old dudes made such a big decision for our entire country. Face it, Internet access is something that affects ALL of us.
But some people are planning to take business into their own hands and do what they can to take a stand. More specifically, hacker and activist group Anonymous.
If you haven’t heard of Anonymous before, they’re the online vigilante warriors you just might recognize by their Guy Fawkes masks. They’re especially well known for collaborative “hacktivism”, where the members work together to hack their targets. And this time, their targets are very specific (and public).
The threat is pretty vague, but it’s still there: if Anonymous has anything to say about it, the three people who voted to kill net neutrality are going to pay. How? We’ll just have to wait to find out. But trust me, we’re waiting.
After all, why pay ridiculous prices to watch Netflix when you get all this political drama for free?
